With this investment from the customers and government, Renesas is saved! so what kind of restructure will happen next? Without KKR intervention, do doubt that there will be big change. Economic is bad, we may see the next round of help soon.

Junko, This is what I had written in one of my comments earlier..."Although KKR deal is now discussed by parent companies and bankers of Renesas, I have my own doubts whether this deal will go through. National sentiments and other pressures that you have mentioned in your article will try their level best to ensure that a sick company remains on a death bed forever." This is exactly what is happening now.

We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
